Ariel is our tiny little muffin. She is a special, sensitive, and sweet little girl who's favorite thing in the world is to be cuddle up with a kind human. It's no wonder, she was rescued from the horrific world of dogfighting. But she does not let her past define her. Ariel is great with dogs, cats, kids, even ferrets!
Due to her lack of early socialization she is a fearful dog, she is not really afraid of humans, her fears are more environmental. Her world, prior to her rescue, we very small, so she will need a patient person to help her habituate to life as a pet.
Ariel is officially a Providence Animal Rescue League (PARL) dog but is in foster care at the home of Vicktory Dog Handsome Dan, where she is receiving tons of love and behavioral work from an Associate Certified Dog Behavior Consultant and Certified Professional Dog Trainer. She integrated with our two dogs, Dan and Minnie, and she is working hard to find her confidence and learn what it's like to live as part of a family for the first time.
Ariel is four or five years old but everyone who meets her thinks she is still a puppy. She is so tiny and her face just has that puppy look about it.
Ariel comes with free private training with me, Heather Gutshall, ACDBC, CPDT-KA through PARL's Leap Fund program.
Ariel is very special to us, and we can't wait to see her blossom into the dog we know she can become. She is extremely endearing and loving.
